    I used an armbar in a real fight once. I knew the guy who was trying to fight me though, so i didn't really wanna bloody him up or injure him too bad. He did a bad takedown attempt and ended up on his back with me in side control. I was basically trying to just hold him down til he calmed down. If I had really wanted to mess him up, I could have easily GnPed at this point. He seemed to calm down, so I was letting him up, and he started swinging, so I grabbed him and armbarred him, putting enough pressure so that it really hurt but didn't snap. THAT made him think twice about fighting.

    So I suppose maybe it was only a halfway real fight. Because while the guy was trying (in vain) to swing at me, I wasn't really trying to hurt him. If I had been, there were several things I would have done first.

    Used it once on an angry drunk Mexican dude at a party who decided to tackle me out front. He left an arm dangling with a drunken punch, and I grabbed it from the bottom and laid him down. He didn't know wtf was going on...

    So Crash, did you break his arm? What happened next?

    That would be a fight ender in most situations, I'd hope. I can see myself using it as a sweep from guard, one of my favs if the guy has taken me down and is throwing from guard(in training I mean).
    Otherwise though, If I was in mount I'd stay there for GnP.

    i was wondering this myself the other day, since armbars don't seem to me to be the most vicious possible joint manipulation, and because they require you to be in a position that is, in my opinion, possibly the most vulnerable to a secondary attack, as fernando pointed out.

    So it seems then that traditional JJ is not as crappy as many people say.
    I mean, standing locks = traditional JJ.

    I've had friends use armbars in fights and break their opponents arms. Luke Beston was one of them: while working as a bouncer he got taken down, so he front swept the guy, got mount and then armbarred and broke the guys arm.
